Wag & Train is GRRRROWING!!

Wag & Train is GRRRROWING!!

After 15 years of providing science-based, positive dog and puppy training in Denver, Wag & Train is expanding to a new city. As of November 1, 2016, Wag & Train will also be providing services in the Minneapolis, MN area. Owner Kari Bastyr grew up in Minneapolis and went to school in St. Cloud. She shares, “My entire family still live very close to where I grew up, and I am blessed to have their support in this new venture.  When I moved to Denver I never dreamed I’d be able to expand back home, but the opportunity has arrived and I am going to take it- I cant think of two better cities to split my time.”

Wag & Train Denver services are not changing. However, an exciting new shelter partnership is on the horizon that will allow Wag & Train to help keep many more adopted dogs in their homes, and provide dog-friendly, people-focused training for pet parents who need it. unnamed-4

Thank you to all of our past and current clients who have afforded us this great success. We are extremely excited that Wag & Train is going to be able to provide education for even more pet parents and their fur babies in 2017 and beyond. Whether you are in Denver, or the Twin Cities area, for more information call 720-312-5499 or email  We are lucky to be able to serve fur babies in both states.

About Wag & Train

Wag & Train Animal Behavior Specialists, LLC provides both individual dog/people training, and group classes for all ages of canines. We use only science-based, dog-friendly positive methods and do not use or condone any choke chains, prong collars, shock collars, force or fear.  We specialize in dog-dog and dog-people aggression, but also have puppy and older dog classes for people who simply are looking to create good manners through impulse control training at home.
